Chariots of Jedi – [18 June, 11:13 am PST]
Space.com published another article yesterday on Star Wars called Chariots of Jedi. It discusses the relationship between George Lucas’s love for auto racing and how it was reflected in all four Star Wars movies. Check it out:
It’s odd that we haven’t seen much commentary on the connection between Star Wars and auto racing, since so much of the behavior of the Force is so obviously derived from George Lucas’ youthful love of fast cars.
All four films feature high-speed vehicular chase scenes: The Death Star trench, the asteroid field, the forests of Endor, the Boonta Eve pod race. But only in The Phantom Menace is this hunger for velocity directly identified as racing for its own sake.
Auto racing reflects the “balance of the Force” between aggression and calm reserve, Sith and Jedi. The Sith driver who guns his vehicle all the way into a turn will rocket past drivers who are not so reckless, and feel a self-congratulatory rush of contempt for those he has passed so easily.

Coming Attractions with BIG Spoiler News!!- [18 June, 1:30 am PST]
While seeking more information on rumors that Temuera Morrison has been cast in Episode II, Coming Attractions has come across a major piece of information. If it’s true, never again will we look at this character the same way. From CA:
..Now [our source] returned to share what they’ve heard floating around the soundstages in Sydney, and it has something to do with the reports of actor Temuera Morrison and the child actors who are being looked at to play what’s rumored to be a youthful version of Morrison’s SW2 character.
These five words is what they were told:
“Boba Fett has a son.” < -highlight
This puts a huge spin on things, and leaves me a little confused. For details on my speculation visit the Prequel Theories section of the character being discussed. Does this also mean that Temuera Morrison is playing Boba Fett? <-highlight

The coolest dude in Star Wars yesterday received a Star on Hollywood Boulevard. Samuel L. Jackson, dress in Black pants, Shirt, Jacket and his famous Kangol hat, was presented with the 2195th Star on the famous Walk of Fame.
51 years old Jackson received the award surrounded by many of his family and friends as well as over 500 fans. The day was a very special one for Mr. Jackson as not only did he receive his star but his new movie SHAFT also opened in cinemas across the United States.
Commenting on his award Jackson said. "I remember coming here in 1969 and looking at all the names on the boulevard. It never came across my mind that I would be a part of this ever."

Popcorn on Ep.II Effects - [16 June, 9:53 am PST]
Popcorn.co.uk followed up the official site's article on the effects of Episode II. It's not much different from what the starwars.com posted, but here's some of what they said:
The visual effects in 'Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace' are set to be surpassed on 'Episode II'. That's the unsurprising claim being made by the team working on George Lucas's latest 'Star Wars' installment, due to begin shooting in a couple of weeks.

Mace Windu Theory Updated - [15 June, 9:50 pmPST]
Avid Star Wars fans are pursuing the tantalizing mysteries of Episode I. One of such fans is Noel Gallagher, who sent in the following on Mace Windu:
Well, the brand new Mace Windu 12" figure was released and it does have that same light saber that he is seen with in the visual dictionary! This is big news because if that image you show was a mistake...then why would Hasbro repeat the mistake when they created their new Mace Windu figure?

Episode II News - [15 June, 10:45 am PST]
SD chimes in to Episode-X with some cool news from down under. Casting, sets, characters, etc... This guy is to be trusted so you'll have to do some highlighting - spoilers ahead:
Boba Fett has been cast and Bail Organa is definitely in the film as well, so I'm assuming that he has also been cast, since all the speaking roles have been filled. I can't confirm, but I personally believe that Mon Mothma and Tarkin will be making appearances in the film as well. I can't be sure about Owen and Beru, but I assume they are there too.
As for set news, I can confirm that there is a throne room set, and another set known as the "chamber". What kind of chamber do you think it is? Gets the juices flowing, doesn't it?
Pretty cool stuff. Thanks to SD and Poncho, who is a god among men - visit Eppy-X for more.

But underneath there lies a hole inside.

And yet the force to wield whichever side.
